The annual event, which has been running for over 50 years, will take place on Wednesday 7 and Friday 9 May and will feature the work of 14 graduating fashion students.

The designers have each created a garment from woven fabrics provided by Borders-based Lochcarron which they will send down the runway with bespoke headpieces.

Robert Gillan, associate head of the School of Design said: 'This year's fashion show promises to be one of the best ever with a particularly strong final year group whose hard work has resulted in an eclectic range of collections ... we fully anticipate audiences to be impressed by the level of creativity, skill and the vision of our students.'

The show will also include collections by graduates, second and third year students as well as work by textile designers and theatrical pieces from the Performance Costume class.

This year's show will take place in the college's sculpture court at 6.30pm and 9pm on Wednesday 7 May, and 7pm and 9pm on Friday 9 May. Tickets, priced £15, go on sale on Monday 10 March and are available from Tickets Scotland at www.ticket-scotland.com, 0131 220 3234, or in person from their Rose Street branch.
